About Softtreasures

Hello Everyone!

Who am I?

I live in Sydney and I love and enjoy being artsy and crafty. I love to craft, shop, garden and travel than doing household chores. 

My exposure to handmade crafts started when I was still little. My mom used to recycle old clothes into nightwear, make fabric yoyos out of scraps and create them into beautiful placemats or table runners, crocheted curtains with a peacock design. These skills she inherited from her mother. I remember my grandmother used to make dresses for us.

My Dad also liked to create things by hand. He used to recycle old tables or tables with broken legs into a chair or a wooden toy wagon. When he retired from work, to keep himself busy he would make small beds for my nieces and nephews and would put wheels on it so it was easy to tuck or push them under their parents bed and not occupy space during daytime.

I love making things by hand. The smaller it is the crazier and better as I get a real feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment when it is done.

I love gardening and travelling and I live to garden and travel, who loves to see her garden grow and see the world and learn about other people's culture and history. One who believes that gardening is believing there is a tomorrow and that travelling adds more colour to the imagination and inspires more creativity. 

My love for crafting and travelling inspired me in 2011 to start a charity work where I provide dresses to the less-fortunate children around the world. I finally found something worthwhile to do where I can make use of my hobby and craft skills to help other people and it is not just any kind of help but helping most especially the disadvantaged children. If you want to know more about this campaign, please visit my Dress A Girl Australia blog here.

So if you are wondering sometimes if someone makes it or wish someone can make it. visit soft treasures. You may find the handmade treasure you are looking for. My handmade items are very limited in quantity as they are made by hand sometimes just one of a kind. 

Thank you and Happy Crafting, gardening and travelling!
